Off Center- An International Ceramics Competition

Eligibility:

Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BCE, people have been fascinated with clay. Today, artists continue to astound us as they push the boundaries of our preconceived ideas of what ceramics represent. From playful pieces disguised as everyday objects, to finely detailed vessels, ceramics delights and surprises us in its evolution. Whether you work in a more traditional style, or prefer completely outlandish creations, we want to showcase your vision and techniques from around the world during this annual show.
